'A Boy and His Blob' Comes To Nintendo Switch This Fall - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 5, 2021 @ 1:46 p.m. PDT

A reimagining of the NES side-scrolling puzzle platformer, you feed your blob jelly beans and watch him transform into cool and useful objects to solve puzzles and escape danger.

In a franchise that dates back to David Crane’s 1989 A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia, this edition by WayForward Technologies has been praised for its beautiful 2D hand-drawn animation and faithfulness to the puzzle mechanics of Crane's Original NES version.

In the game, the planet of Blobolonia is under threat by an evil Emperor set on world domination. Players control a young boy as he works with his friend, an alien blob-like creature with incredible shapeshifting abilities activated by eating jelly beans. Together the duo attempts to defeat enemies and solve puzzles in order to reach Blobolonia and dethrone the tyrannical Emperor.

With its robust and emotionally driven story, challenging puzzles, and visually impressive art style, A Boy and His Blob is sure to become a classic once again.

“We are delighted to announce this new Switch version of the game, which is just the start of our long-term commitment to the A Boy and His Blob universe,” said Michael Devine, SVP of Business Development at Ziggurat. “Games like Blob only come along once in a great while and we are absolutely thrilled to continue Blob’s journey with our friends at WayForward for new and old audiences alike.”

Key Features:

  • Experience a heartwarming story told through beautiful hand-drawn and animated illustrations!
  • Feed the blob jellybeans to activate 15 useful transformations such as the Caramel Cannon, Bubble Gum Bouncer, and classic beans like the Licorice Ladder, Apple Jack, and Tangerine Trampoline.
  • Traverse woods, swamps, caves, the Blobolonian Outskirts, and even the Emperor's Citadel through 40 breathtaking levels filled with hidden treasures! Collect treasure to unlock 40 additional challenge levels that will put your skills to the ultimate test! 

Currently available for PC (Steam), Nintendo Wii, PS3 and Xbox, A Boy and His Blob will arrive for the first time on Nintendo Switch in Fall 2021.
